Printing on CD's (business card style)

My Canon MP800 has a jig that lets me print to a cd/dvd or even one of those business card shaped CD's.

I'd like to buy say 100 of these business card CD's and print on them.

Wondering if anyone has done this and has a recommendation on brand of blank media that works well for this purpose?

I was looking at this site:


Perhaps the Ritek: http://www.tapeandmedia.com/mini_biz..._printable.asp

or the Primera: http://www.tapeandmedia.com/detail.a..._id=PMV_053340

Anyone have any experience or results?

No one likes these CDs, because many computers (including yours) can't play them.

I know the business card CDs seem like a good idea but the minute someone loads that into a slot CD instead of a tray you are going to get a call...

that would be about replacing the CD drive on their computer.

I won't repeat what's been said but....

....why don't you design some sort of fancy "envelope" that holds a regular CD in it. It may not be as 'cute', but it'll be compatible with any type of disc drive. Plus you can get creative with the envelope. I'm not talking about a regular envelope though. More like heavy stock paper/board that fold up to the dimensions of the CD. You can put some design on it, your name, contact info, website, etc. on it. Just a suggestion.

(btw: the business card CDs your talking about I think will work on the regular tray CD drives, but not slot loading like on MacBooks/Pros)
I use OS X because of Windows. And I use Android because of iOS.
